Roger Clemens says he wouldn't take steriods because it would be suicidal. He said his family has a history of heart problems. His brother and STEP FATHER. Um, I didn't realize step genes passed on. I wonder if when you divorce a person and get a new step parent if you lose those genes too?

Maybe his step father passed him down a pair of blue jeans when he was younger, and he just got confused? ::)

I still think Roger Clemens is innocent.







LOL.  Okay not so much.

But I'm still giving Manny the benefit of the doubt.

Yeah. I missed it though. Did Manny end up having a boy or a girl? ;)

This had me laughing about Carlos Gomez:

"MILWAUKEE (AP) - First Carlos Gomez heard voices. Then he watched his iPod go haywire after he got out of the shower, sending him scrambling for the lobby without stopping to put on his pants and shoes.

 
The inside of the hotel has that ominous "Shining" feel to it. (Pfister Hotel / Special to FOXSports.com)
After last year's experience, the Minnesota Twins outfielder didn't want to go back to Milwaukee's Pfister Hotel. But Gomez had to stay there when the Twins were in town to play the Brewers last month, so he brought some protection: teammate-turned-roommate Francisco Liriano and a Bible.

"Everything's scary," Gomez said. "Everything in the hotel, the paintings and pictures, it's a lot of old, crazy stuff. No good, man. No good."

So, last Friday night there was a NL West game between the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres. Other than those markets, probably not many tuned in to watch; however, it was significant because the Giants' Jonathan Sanchez threw San Francisco's first no-hitter in 33 years. It was also significant because Sanchez was making a spot start since being demoted from the rotation after posting a 2-8 record and 5.30 ERA during the first half. In 50 games started over the last four years, he'd never had even a shutout, let alone gone nine innings. And what makes the story all the more remarkable, is that his father flew in from Puerto Rico to see his son pitch a MLB game...for the first time.

I'll admit that I was watching the game last Friday, but after the fourth inning, opted to stick in a NetFlix. I'm kicking myself now. After the movie ended, I switched to the game and was probably 15 minutes late for the last pitch. I'd missed it all live but for the next hour and a half, I soaked in all the relived drama and interviews I could.

Last night, they replayed the game in its entirety and it was awesome. His pitches were electric and his curve was filthy. If not for an eighth-inning error, it would have been a perfect game. But to me, after waiting 33+ years to see my Giants throw a no-no, it was perfect. This is why baseball is special. Awesome, just awesome.

And I'll admit that I was riding that train pretty hard for the Giants to trade Sanchez to get a bat, any bat, but now I think they should at least keep him to see what happens. Will he regress or will he maintain what he learned during his demotion? Hopefully he'll be better and the Giants will have a starting three to rival all others. But if it doesn't work out and he regresses to his career 5 ERA, at least he gave us Giants fans a game to remember.

I scored some behind-home-plate tickets for Tuesday's Ranger game against the Red Sox.  Not much else to report, but I haven't been to a game yet this year and the seats are great.

Of course, this time next month I'll be at a Cubs game. :)

I'm sort of hoping for Pirate tickets (oh yes, I'm serious) from my gf's company.  They have a private box, and man that dessert cart rocks balls when it rolls around.  Best chocolate cake I ever had.  Plus big screen tv's to watch something good!  Oh, and 2 beers, all you can drink, all night! :)

I'm surprised you can't just walk into the Pirate's ballpark and watch for free anytime you want, at this point.

You more or less can.

Seriously though, tickets are cheap...  They sell alright because I think most who go just like baseball in general, and the roster's pay isn't worth a piss.  They're making money...  The park generally draws the "crowd" (they don't sell out by any means though).  Then there's fireworks nights, which they have almost every-other-night.  Everyone loves fireworks, right?  :D

Nice park, good food...  You may catch a decent team in town too, to play against them.  Eh...  It's a formula.

They were saying the other day on a local sports show how there's kids in college, who've never seen a winning Pirates team.  I can recall the Leland/Bonilla/Bonds/Van Slyke era...  It's becoming foggy to me though, haha.

But our ballpark is gorgeous, seriously.  :)  And that cake...  Man that was good cake.  Plus Newcastle beer all night.  And the TV's...  There's lots of things to do beside the game, basically.

They can't all be Steelers and Penguins I suppose.   >:D
